CAT™ Covert Armored T‑Shirt


Sometimes the best-concealed armor isn't hidden at all – it hides in plain view

Mimicking the design of a classic shirt, this stylish model packs a ballistic armor package into a discrete and comfortable form factor. The perfect vest for undercover and everyday protection alike.


Armor inserts are virtually invisible at first sight but they are designed to offer the maximal possible area of protection for the operator.

Adapt To Your Environment

Our soft armor panels cover a wide range of ballistic threats from handguns to explosive fragmentation – find which protection level suits your needs.

Bulletproof Your Wardrobe

Add a layer of discrete armor to your personal or professional outfit, letting you maintain your style without sacrificing protection. Perfect for bodyguards, VIPs or undercover operations, this discrete vest can be worn comfortably without attracting unwanted attention.

Fast Dressing/Undressing

We’ve utilized dual side-zippers to ensure easy and fast dressing/undressing without compromising concealment. Running from the armpit down, they naturally follow the body, creating a low profile and ensuring maximum comfort.

Stay Clean and Comfortable

Utilizing special antibacterial and moisture-wicking fabrics, CAT™ can be comfortably worn for prolonged periods. Now you can keep your ballistic armor on throughout a deployment – keeping your guard up at all times.

Materials Matter

We follow MIL-SPEC standards to ensure uncompromising functionality, durability, and longevity in combat conditions. Our products are built to last and manufactured with a quality you can rely on.

The fact someone asked me about my venetran status in the chat so that they would give me a discount really took me by surprise! Not only does this company have great stuff, it is activelly pro-patriots and pro-veterans which is so rare nowadays.

We got these for the entire team (club security) and so far the experience was 10 out of 10. The coverage is excellent, and the armor also protects from slashes and stabs which is amazing for something that is this incognito.


Is it possible to use CAT™ as covert armor under clothing?

As it is only slightly thicker than normal civilian apparel, the CAT™ can be worn under any clothes, regardless of how thin it is. Also, it can be worn in the open as covert armor as it perfectly resembles casual clothes.

Is it possible to wash the CAT™

You will need to remove the ballistic panels, as they are not washable. Once they are out, it is completely possible to machine-wash the shirt and dry it as any regular clothes. Return the ballistic panel inside only once the shirt is dry.

Is it possible to use a single set of armor with two CAT™ shirts?

If you need ballistic protection regularly, it would be prudent to buy multiple shirts and a single ballistic panel. That way you can wear a new clean shirt every day while not needing a dedicated panel for each one.

How to choose my perfect fit size?

By measuring your chest and waist.
Your perfect fit is a combination of the size of the plate and the cummerbund. For that, you will need to measure your chest and waist and can then get an ideal combination.
At the top of the page, there is Size Chart where you can select the option Determine Size, which will tell you exactly which size will fit your requirements perfectly. You can also check the Size Chart at the Tech Specs.

Is it NIJ Certified?

This product has been independently tested in NIJ-accredited laboratories according to the NIJ Standard 0101.06, as well as certified laboratories according to NATO STANAG 2920 (V50 fragmentation) and DSTU 8782:2018 against Soviet/Russian ammunition.

Is it possible to install hard plates inside CAT™?

If you want to stay covert while adding protection against rifles, you will need to use a low-profile plate carrier like the WPC™ Weightless Plate Carrier. In such a combination, you can still wear almost any type of clothes over your armor without it being noticeable.
